Scott. From their web site I copied the following (from the end of the page).....
"In cluster headache, pain can be controlled by surgery to either the trigeminal system or nervus intermedius-superficial petrosal-sphenopalatine system. With both approaches, the pain is rarely cured."
Note that pain is controlled, not cured.
In woodworking we have an old saying...measure twice, cut once. With surgery, think twice, you can only cut once!
